Time to pour gasoline into our flames and respond to some of these.

Dark Souls isn't actually very good.
You are right. Dark Souls is absolute garbage. People claim it's super difficult "hardcore" gaming. It's not. Challenge isn't getting killed in one hit because you went the wrong way and fought something super powerful. Anyone who likes it is wrong.

Destiny is game of the generation!
No it isn't. I haven't played it, but the shit Bungie's apparently doing with the DLC is nonsense. It's a piece of shit. Anyone who likes it is wrong.

IPAs are highly overrated and generally taste like liquified pine trees.

At this point, we are simply stating facts.

Of course Beats suck. Those assholes literally take like, 15 dollar headphones and stick a logo on them to increase the price.

Granted, I have headphones, around as cheap as that and they are probably superior to Sennheiser since those have virtually no bass. (unless the thing you are playing is kinda just bassy sound).

By the way, Skullcandy things break in 8 seconds.

Skullcandy >>>>>>> Beats.
By the way, Skullcandy things break in 8 seconds.

Being more serious here for a moment, my current pair of headphone is skull candy that I specifically bought because it has a detachable wire. I rarely am able to keep headphones for more than 2 years because the wire always ends up with a short. Now if that happens, I just have to replace the wire rather than get a whole new set.

Also, this is pretty fun, but if it gets out of hand or too personal, one of the mods or myself will lock it down.

So word of warning... hanging things up and taking care of your shit ends up breaking them for no reason. I blame scratcher because.

I still salute the mods that actually stuck around during that time and did the best they could. You guys are awesome.

It's just one of those things that can happen to an internet community during its twilight years (no matter how long that twilight lasts). People come and go and eventually it'll pick up one or more kids who feel powerless and pathetic in their day-to-day lives, so they go online to find the small measures of success or recognition that their personal life lacks. Sometimes they discover they are good playing games and pwning n00bs, some discover that they're highly creative and their works are appreciated, and then there are the few who find that they are *still* not good at much of anything. Even in a small community, they have no way to overcome their deep personal flaws and be acknowledged as somehow special. They take the easiest route, find ways to get negative attention and have enough stick-to-itiveness to be recognized by what remains of a community. It provides a feeling of some significance to what has been, until then, a life unfulfilled and grossly insignificant, even on a human scale.

Most people who do this eventually come into their own in some sort of way, grow up, and start finding ways to actually have power and meaning in their own life. Others, well... this may be as good as it gets for them.

Mortal Kombat is better than Tekken or Street Fighter!
And SoulCalibur is better than all of those because the moves actually work! Street Fighter is probably the lowest on the list. But then again, no one in existence could simply guess how to do a fatality, and even those don't work properly.

Grasp of Darkness 2. "I love Dink, but as people has mentioned, I too think that it is not worth completing DMODs atm." - Quiztis. So, no.

Ridge Conspiracy. What?

Aside from "My Pet Death", are any of you working on things or have you all given up. Just curious.

I'm on the fence. Maybe, maybe not. I have one that I have been doing stuff with now, and I dunno if I'll finish it or not.

Ridge Conspiracy is a dmod scratcher is making. I hope he finishes that because it was going to be really weird.

As for me, I haven't worked on my pet death for a while, but I'm going to get back to it soon. I'll think I'm going to try and push myself to do at least one thing a day in that. Be it decorating a screen, or writing a script. I'm going to get working on it now.

I... don't think I've worked on Ridge Conspiracy once since announcing it. The dmod is in good shape, though, with not much more work needed to wrap it up. It would be a shame if I never finished it.

There's also another dmod I hope I'll be able to complete at some point, which is an amalgation of some of the stuff I've worked on during my years here, but never finished. It was going to be a sprawling epic, but that's not going to happen; if I repurpose it into a quest, it'll still be very good, and also nearly complete already.

I definitely intend to release at least one more dmod, because the only modern thing I've got is Lost Forest Romp, and I held back while creating that in many ways: (Because it was made for the Throwback Dmod Contest) I want to go full out with the crazy. =)

The urge for DMODing comes and goes. I've pretty much finished story, setting and most of the mechanics for GoD2, so the framework is there. Levels are actually created in a game I'm working on on the side.

I'm still going to at least get my DMOD to a playable unfinished state with some sort of last boss and ending. I kind of want to add a couple more levels or even finish it, but that probably won't happen with everything else I have on my plate these days.

I started playing Dark Souls a few weeks ago. I have mixed feelings. I like the atmosphere, but the controls were horrifyingly unintuitive and difficult to get into. I've gotten through Undead Burg, the sewer place and the bell tower church thing so far, and I still find the controls pretty crappy. Too often I die because the camera spasms while dodging into something, I casually stroll off a ledge, I accidentally open the ducking gestures menu, or the target lock either fails to lock on or locks into the wrong thing.

I also don't think the game's difficult, so much as it's punishing. If you could save anywhere or the game had a frequent checkpoint system, getting through it would actually be very easy. As long as you know what's going to happen next, what foe is going to pop up or what kind of move a boss is going to perform, it's no problem. But if you DON'T know, you're going to die. You can only learn what will happen by playing the game, so you die a lot, and each time you die, you have to backtrack a long distance, potentially losing hours worth of experience should you die again before reaching your essence.

The game makes me ducking angry, which is why I keep coming back to it, and want to beat it. No way is the game going to beat ME, regardless of what kind of unfair bullshit jump kills it pulls!

There's a glitch in the forest area if you unlock the door where you can aggro some of the ghost knights and then make them walk off the edge. I farmed souls this way and the game became really easy. Even on the second play through I wasn't really having any difficulties. I never finished the second play through though because the game was pretty boring the second time. Pretty sure I was almost done with the second play through too.

Are you playing with a controller? I can't imagine playing this game without a controller.

Yeah, I think my issue, aside from the horrendous controls really is that "ain't nobody got time for that". I'm just not enough of a masochist to conflate "punishing" as good game design. I have a massive library of other games and damn social life which is just more incentive to not give DS any more of my time.

Also, unlike you, I didn't really like the atmosphere. I've seen enough dirty-brown dark fantasy worlds and DS did nothing to stand out from the rest.

I've noticed the difficulty of games in general tends to be very exaggerated by people. Especially games from the NES-era. There are so many NES games where people say "This is one of the hardest games ever", but really, most of the time that is BS. I've recently been playing Battletoads. I've made it to level 8 so far, and is it a difficult game like everybody says? Apart from a few parts, no. Having tons of trial-and-error parts and being very punishing for failing them is not difficult; just annoying and frustrating. I've played very few games that I think are actually difficult. The Phantom Menace on PS1 gets pretty hard at points. If that game didn't have the save feature it does, it'd be the hardest game ever. Another game I remember having a hard time with is Spy Hunter: Nowhere To Run on PS2. All I remember is getting to around level 5 and it being hard as duck. It was poor enough to make me not wanna keep playing, too.

Yeah, I've found that a lot of games on NES aren't hard, but just have terrible controls. Stiff, can't really play too quick. Non-control-wise, jumping back like in Castlevania is more of a bad design choice than anything. There's always a ducking pit and it's just designed to one shot. They're designed this way to artificially lengthen the game because they didn't have much space.

Though, Final Fantasy is pretty long and has a lot of stuff in it. So, maybe that argument is bullshit, who knows.

But I refuse to believe you had no trouble with the Turbo Tunnel. That thing legitimately looks hard as duck. You actually have to react to everything it throws at you and it's not some bullshit trial and error thing since it shows you what's coming and where before it shows up. Only thing there that really looks 100% unfair is the fact you can easily slip through the platforms if you don't jump at just the right time.

You want a hard game, try this. The combat actually allows for a lot to do, so when you get to Zodd, prepare for a stressful ducking fight.

He's also the first boss.

Heh, it's funny you say that, cause even getting to level 7 pretty much requires no screwing up at all during the first four levels. And I'm assuming getting to the final boss will likely require no messing up at all.

Of course it's hard to get the Turbo Tunnel down at first. But that's just more of the trial-and-error. Believe it or not, once you get it down it actually isn't hard at all. Now I can do it basically every time without messing up once. Same with Volkmire's Inferno, though that's still a bit harder considering you get less practice cause it's later on in the game. I actually made it through the Turbo Tunnel on 2-players with my cousin. That was pretty difficult, cause no matter how well you do, if the other player screws up you both go back. Though I'm sure now we could do it easy, at least on my part. It's unbelievable how much of a confidence/skill boost it gives you when you get through a level even just once.

Yeah, I couldn't beat Turbo Tunnel when I was 10, but it actually got to be pretty easy when I came back and played the game again at 18. Even at that age, I could only get as far as the snake level (though I think I once managed to get a warp forward to the level with the jets and the flaming background). I would still consider Battletoads to be stupid hard, and pretty punishing.

Dunno. I've noticed people who've beaten Battletoads once, can beat it nearly flawlessly every time after that. So it doesn't really seem like that hard a game. I consider a truly difficult game something you can beat as many times as you want but still have trouble with every time.

Not in that game you can't. Went down the stairs instead of up? A dude with a shield one shots you and you can't block him. Go somewhere else. You're not powerful enough yet. If they're taking away 90% of your health in one blow, you're doing fiiiine.

Haha, no. Those games that are purely dependent on RNG are just RNG. Like Binding of Isaac. People say it's tough, but it just depends on if you get some good stuff on a run and just what the rooms are like.

Still have to guess what all those stupid cards do though, but it's all random chance which ones you get and what enemies you fight.

Well, Battletoads is a lot about memorization, I'm sure that once you have the patterns for things memorized, it's not too bad. The trouble was getting all the way to the later levels to actually start memorizing those as well, dying as you learned in them, and then having to start completely over again. Also, a lot of the people who put that stuff online are just a lot better than the average gamer and are very good at making their feats look easy... I'm a pretty average gamer when it comes to skill level.

The hardest games I can think of are Ninja Gaiden and Robot Odyssey.

Ninja Gaiden on the NES was also kind of in the same vein as Battletoads... extremely punishing and stupid hard. The more recent versions were also really tough, but I found them to be a LOT more fair than Dark Souls. If I died in Ninja Gaiden, I felt like it was my own fault rather wrestling with the clunky controls or camera, or some kind of "LOL, you can't go that way yet, guess you have die and start over" BS. I guess the only thing I didn't like about the newer Ninja Gaidens were the times where the waves of enemies seemed virtually endless; those were just exhausting and not very fun.

Eh, I played to 6-2 recently. That's when extremely punishing and stupid hard. comes in. Up until that point, the cheapest things were shitty enemy placement specifically to get you to fall. The only other section I can think of that was 6-2 levels of bullshit, but not as bad, was the one before that tall knight thing I can't remember the name of who could not be dodged whatsoever. After being cheaply killed by nonsense enemies and causing them to attack in a certain pattern, I could get passed them. The way to defeat the knight was seriously just to walk up to him and hit him a lot and hope he dies first since his attacks are impossible to avoid.

6-2 on the other hand takes the section from before the knight and adds a pile of enemies on a few platforms. Bird knocks you down, 1 shotted. You kill a bird, it comes back instantly, knocks you down, one shotted. Goblin is throwing shit at you while this all happens and he's standing at the edge of a platform. It's stupid. I quit at that point saying that even if I got to the demon, he has three forms and if I don't beat them all on my first go, then the game's going to duck me over by sending me back to 6-1 or 6-2 or whatever.

This is the main problem. But you don't really have to be an above-average gamer to make it through. You just need to have a shitload of free time to waste away on a video game. It's like... is a memory game difficult? No. But if you have 500 cards and every time you get a guess wrong you have to start over, most people don't have the time for that.

Beating Battletoads isn't based on reflexes, though. In fact, if you start playing by reflexes, you're gonna fail hard. It's impossible. The whole thing is about knowing what's gonna happen next, so you can start reacting beforehand. That's the only way to make it through. Best examples of this would be the levels Volkmire's Inferno and Surf City, where there's literally no time to avoid the hazards unless you know what to do before said hazards appear.

The later part of Surf City, with the mines, is one of the few parts in the entire game where you do need skill and reflexes. But it's easy, proving as far as fair challenge goes, the game isn't difficult at all.

I can't believe everyone complains about that guy. I guess everyone except me just sucks at Ninja Gaiden. GET ON THE GODDAMN PILLAR THEN JUMP. You can dodge his lightning bolt attack every time.

But Ninja Gaiden definitely isn't a great example of good difficulty. It just throws a lot of shit at you from off screen, too quick to react to. The only reason I persevered with that game was the wicked cool soundtrack - very possibly the best melodies in any game ever.

Nah, getting behind him and taking loads of damage as a result just to dodge the bolts sounds much less safe than just running up there and whacking him a bunch.

No, I mean get on the pillar and jump up when he attacks, the bolt won't hit you. Just whacking is definitely a viable tactic on this and several bosses, though, provided you got that far with enough health to spare.

Because to use your reflexes you need to see what's ahead of you first. But if you know what's coming next, you can start reacting beforehand, which means you're not using your reflexes, but your memory. If you beat Turbo Tunnel on your first try without a single loss, then that'd be playing with your reflexes. But how many people have done that? I doubt anyone.

Though, with Turbo Tunnel I think it would still technically be possible. With Surf City and Volkmire's Inferno it's just legitimately impossible, cause once you see what's ahead of you, it's already too late. No matter how good reflexes you have.

You do see what's ahead of you. The ramps and walls flash before they actually come at you. It's not like you're memorizing multiple in a row and then dodging based on that memory.

Yes, it is. That's exactly what you do, in fact. Try beating Volkmire's Inferno by only starting to react after you see what's ahead of you. It's not possible. If you only start moving after you see what's ahead of you, it's already too late. The way to beat it is to memorize every single part of the level, and use the background to know which part you're supposed to go to ahead of time.

Mad Max: Fury Road is subpar.

Max has no character, growling in a ridiculous Christian Bale's ridiculous Batman voice voice. The chick is the real protagonist, and she's not much better. Her defining character traits are being relentless and having dipped her head into an oil barrel.

The action scenes look good, but since you don't care about any of the people, you don't care about any of what's going on; Action without emotional investment is just a bunch of guys jumping around. The only remotely sympathetic character was Knux (orwhateverthehellthatnamewas), and his story arc of becoming a good guy all of a sudden made no sense.
